From the Kitchen Garden: Harbingers of Spring

We have been busy preparing the Torridon kitchen garden for the new season. Yes, spring is in the air, our first snowdrops and a few polyanthuses are in flower and soon we will get a flush of narcissi. We have jerusalem artichokes for soups and puree and land cress, and wood sorrel from our woodlands for garnishes. Our gardening companions are the many robins that pop up at the mere idea of worm or grub appearing as we weed and till the soil. These birds are always near at hand but very territorial and fierce when another approaches. David Lack wrote a wonderful monograph on these birds many years ago in the Collins New Naturalist series. They are very welcome gardeners’ friends.
